I first heard about the Life Changing Loaf from Julie Daniluk and I was intrigued. I mean, life changing is a pretty big claim for a loaf of bread.
I knew I had to give it a try and I actually ended up following the original recipe from My New Roots. What makes this “bread” spectacular is the insane amount of fiber it packs thanks to the psyllium husks, chia, flax and oats. I love fiber. Fiber fills me up, keeps things regular, balances blood sugar levels, helps keep cholesterol levels in check and so much more. This loaf is not your average loaf of bread. It’s heavy and satisfying, it has a wonderful texture and flavour and I happen to love the sunflower seeds which deliver a satisfying crunch and healthy fats.
So, did it change my life? Not really, but it did improve it for the better. A few slices of this bad boy keep me full and satisfied for hours and really help curb my appetite. The only downside to this bread is the fact that it’s addictive and I’ve learned my lesson not to overindulge, too much fiber can leave me really bloated.
1 cup flaxseeds
4 TBSP chia seeds
5 TBSP psylliums husks
2 cups GF rolled oats
1 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup chopped almonds and hazelnuts
1 pinch Hymalayan pink salt
1/3 cup melted coconut oil
- Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl, add coconut oil and water until you get a paste.
- Power mixture into a pan brushed with coconut oil and press well.
- Leave mixture to sit for a few hours until it thickens up. The mixture should hold its shape when tugged at the corners.
- Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for an hour and a half.
- Allow the loaf to cool down and slice. Store it in the freezer.
